I have one of my new queens that is laying lots, probably 2/3 drone eggs. She has been in about 1 month and was laying well at first. I don't know exactly what to do this late in the year. My first reaction is to pinch and requeen. I'd like to hear what others would do in this situation.

Laying that many drones, I would suspect you won't have a hive in the spring. I vote for finding and queen quickly and requeen.

Thanks for the replys, and I basically knew what I had to do. It is for the time frame before winter to purchase a mated Queen. If I can find one. I know there are plenty, but I want Russian.

New pure Russian Queeh ordered from Revis's Russians. She will be here Tue. or Wed. I will tear out all Queen cells and hope there are no virgins on their mating flight. Then I will feed them probably until it is too cold to any more. It was a very strong hive.
